"A gem in the city's jazz scene"
- Time Out Chicago
$10 Mainstage & Economic Club members
Warm up a Michigan winter evening with a night of jazz in the intimate confines of the Mendel Center Hanson Theatre with vocalist and Stevensville native Elaine Dame. When Elaine sings, people stop and listen. Since 1996, the woman Time Out Chicago call “a jazz dynamo” and “a gem in the city’s jazz scene” has been turning heads and capturing attention at the nation’s finest jazz venues, bringing her joyful arrangements to vintage vocal gems and modern standards, alike. Neil Tesser, Grammy award-winning critic and author of The Playboy Guide to Jazz says, “Dame has risen to the top ranks of Chicago jazz singers. She possesses all the musicality one could want in a true jazz vocalist: centered intonation, an enviable command of rhythm, and a translucent but powerful instrument.”
